I'm really new to IP SLA / Object Tracking, and somewhat familiar with EEM.
On my routers that all run IOS version 12.4 and higher, I need to trigger an interface to "shutdown", if there is no ping response from a specific IP address.
I *believe* I would need to configure an IP SLA to do a forever ping to the IP.
Then I need the loss of a ping to trigger a syslog message. Not sure if this happens automatically, or if I need to configure the ip sla to trigger syslog when the ping is lost.
At which point I could configure an EEM script to shutdown the interface, should this ping-loss-syslog message appear.
Am I on the right track? Any suggestions for the IP SLA config portion?
